I am new to Gpg4win and I am trying to set the ciphers, hashes and compressions I want to use as global ‘default’ with GnuPG.
I am using Gpg4win v.1.0.5 with WinPT v.1.0.0 on a Windows XP Home SP2.
I found a nice page that detials how to set preferences this but I am having problems.
I am able can run “gpg --version” to get the version info, etc.
However, when I run “gpg showpref” and “gpg setpref” I get “gpg: can’t open ‘showpref’”.
I adding GnuPG to my environmental variable PATH as so (I removed \GNU):
As far as I understand I can set ‘global’ preferences so each new key set will use these preconfigured preferences, correct?
Here are the ciphers, hashes and compression preferences I want:
Ciphers: Twofish (s10), AES256 (s9), AES192 (s8)
Hash: RIPEMD160 (h7), SHA512 (h6)
Compression: ZIP (z1)
Here is the command that I think is correct:
cd “C:\Program Files\GnuPG”
gpg setpref s10 s9 s8 h7 h6 z1
Am I doing something wrong?
